#231 Because of Jim Buchy.

365reasonstobeafeminist:

Jim Buchy is a Republican Ohio state legislator who is currently doing his best to illegalise abortion in Ohio with the exception of cases where a woman’s life is in danger. 

In the recent Al Jazeera documentary The Abortion War, Buchy was asked the question:

What do you think makes a woman want to have an abortion?

His reply:

Now, see what happens when we let old white men into politics?

nah son, no thanks, I’m actually getting a bit bored of how trendy it is to be apathetic and detached and oh-so-ironic because it’s made all of my peers into insufferable self-absorbed perma-teens.

how about we decide that sincerity and passion are cool, how about we make it cool to do things like try and care about shit other than ourselves, because the responsibility for the future is already starting to rest on our shoulders and I am not looking forward to listening to all these aloof motherfuckers start bitching about how they don’t like the world that everyone else built while they sat around on their asses “pretending to care.”

Women do not have to:

vegankatie:

  • be thin
  • give birth
  • cook for you
  • have long hair
  • wear makeup
  • have sex with you
  • be feminine
  • be graceful
  • shave
  • diet
  • be fashionable
  • wear pink
  • love men
  • be the media’s idea of perfection
  • listen to your bullshit
  • have a vagina

This is very true, but it’s important to remember that if a woman is feminine, graceful, shaves, diets, wears make up, or does any of these things in the list, it doesn’t make her a slave to patriarchy or any less of a feminist than you.

BLESS.
